Amtrak: Work is ahead of schedule at Penn Station

A New Jersey Transit train has become disabled, causing delays in and out of New York Penn Station Saturday evening.

The trouble began when a train from Miami carrying 165 people stalled as it entered Penn Station about 11:50 a.m. A rescue engine was sent at 5:14 p.m.to pull the train into track 8 at Penn Station.

The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey said its PATH trains from Hoboken and Jersey City, New Jersey, cross-honored an average of about 23,000 NJ Transit fares on the first four days.

"This seems to be an electrical issue", an Amtrak spokesman said. PATH stations in New Jersey, along with the commuter hub at Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal, are just some of the places that have seen an uptick in commuters since Monday. Tolbert estimated the rescue would take about 30 minutes.

More than 90% of the trains heading into Penn were on time this week, Scot Naparstek, Amtrak's chief operating officer, said Friday.

Naparstek said there were no other problems such as overhead wire failures in tunnels during the week that could have caused delays, but he cautioned it's unrealistic to assume those won't crop up during the summer.

For several hundred thousand commuters on the Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit - as well as Amtrak passengers who ride between Boston and Washington, D.C. - that means fewer trains during peak periods, the result of track closures to accommodate the repairs.

Saturday's malfunction has nothing to do with the rehab project, officials said.
